When Hillary Clinton spoke with Kara Swisher on her New York Times Opinion Sway podcast, she said most Republicans “have been cowards, spineless enablers” of President Trump.
“Most Republicans are going to want to close the page,” Mrs. Clinton claimed. “They want to see him gone as much as we do, but they can’t say it publicly.”
She also believed that a female president could have handled the coronavirus pandemic better, suggesting she could have done a better job if she won the presidency in 2016 because she was born for it.
Here’s a part of their dialogue:
Swisher: “You noted that a lot of countries that did best in the pandemic were led by women. … Do you think a woman president in the United States would handle the pandemic better?”
Clinton: “I have no doubt, especially if it were me. I have no doubt. I mean, I was born for that.”
Swisher asked, “Would you say ‘lock him up?’”
Clinton: “No, I would never say that. … I believe in the rule of law, unlike some of these people.”
The former first lady also said she “can’t entertain the idea of him winning… It would cause cognitive dissonance of a grave degree.”
“[I]t makes me literally sick to my stomach to think that we’d have four more years of this abuse and destruction of our institutions. And damaging of our norms and our values. And lessening of our leadership. And the list goes on.”
“I think I live rent-free in his head,” she added.
